    The Watch Appreciation Thread - Part two (Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger LeCoultre,

    This watch is from the Rare Handcrafts line, which is a super small batch release (thank you to @Newcomer for schooling me on this recently). In particular, this model is from the Marquetry line, which means this watch is made from extremely intricate cuts of wood layered together to create an...

    It's already been said, but they're fundamentally different approaches to making metal frames. Dita (and the Thom Browne frame they make) make thicker, more prominent frames, with beefier components. The titanium is more substantial with filigree designs and decoration, and the acetate on the...

    What's even crazier about that piece, is that the movement is integrated into the case. So when they went for COSC testing, it was testing the watch as a whole, not just the movement like in other brands.

    The Octo Ultra COSC is so much more impressive given that it looks and feels like an Octo Finnisimo, unlike the RM Ferrari, which doesn't look like anything else from RM.

    Fun fact: @OccultaVexillum actually started this thread and named it way back in the day. Then the moderators of styleforum moved a bunch of other JMM posts from other threads of styleforum into this one, which backdated the tread overall and now makes it look like Dieworkwear was the originator...

    I usually take my glasses off when I'm sampling nose gear. The frames just get in the way of my nose rings.

    I also share your concern about nose divets from long wear. This happen with my Belize sometimes after a few hours, I think we had a fellow here who tried Belize in optical and found that they were just too bulky for constant wear.

    I neither agree nor understand. But it seems like we finally have our answer as to what mouth gear these folks prefer with their JMMs: gars.

    Cartier is best in show IMO. In addition to everything shown already, these are two that I called... Dark dial Americaine - I'm actually very interested in this one, but it's probably not going to make it to my AD Santos GMT - really nicely integrated subdial, very well balanced colors, no...

    @obecity if you want to regulate this thread, you should probably address the dumbest, most ignorant posts here. Just saying.

    Nice, thanks for posting. I did a similar comparison with some fake Belize a few pages back. In hand, it's obvious. But if I were brand new to JMM and haven't felt the weight in my hand, it would be hard to discern.

    Dang didn't see this. Looks like a platinum Daytona on oysterflex. What else? 41mm DD or DJ with a textured dial or some kind?

    I really empathize with what you went through. There's really no way to tell unless you have another model in hand to do a side-by-side comparison. Sorry, it's really unfortunate that ebay is not a reliable place for JMM anymore.

    What are people's predictions for Watches & Wonders? Here's my completely un-asked for take: - Rolex: titanium Sea Dweller, titanium Exp2, new dial colors for Sea Dweller, moonphase 1908, 36mm 1908 - Tudor: BB in carbon for F1, new chrono re-launch with a thinner case and the new bracelet -...

    Thanks, Dino! I've been very very into the neo-vintage rabbit hole lately. It's been an adventure reading about the history of the movement, design, brand, and everything else associated with the watch. The Piguet 1185 movement is so cool

    They were super sketchy and reached out to me on ebay to try to get me to buy directly through them for a private discount. Do not recommend this store at all.
